Rated 3 out of 5 by MainelyRick Can't make it work
I bought to be the little radio that wakes me up. The "User Manual" is so small it takes a magnifying glass to read it. The instruction sheet is poorly worded and does not operate the clock radio. The manual says the device must be in the standby mode to set the alarm. There are no buttons and instructions as to where the standby button is located.

I am scratching my head at some of the reviews. This is an INEXPENSIVE alarm clock radio. You get what you pay for. It is well-made for the price, works flawlessly, and the radio is adequate. Sure, the alarm volume isn't adjustable, but that feature would add to the cost. I don't know if some of you noticed but this is an ALARM clock. It's supposed to wake you up. Sure, the power supply won't fit through holes in headboards, but to put it in the body of the clock would make it larger. It is a good, compact radio clock. The digital tuning is precise. I read some negative comments on the size of the print in the manual. There is a link on the Philips website to the manual. You can enlarge it to your heart's content. Why people are being so picky about this product is beyond my understanding. It works, it was inexpensive, and it is a compact system. Perfect for me.

Nice looking, compact clock radio. Radio station and clock numbers are big enough to be easy to read.
The "User Manual" that came with the radio is totally inadequate. Tiny type is hard to read even with a magnifying glass. Instructions are not clear.
The words on the radio are also too small and messy. Reading some of it is impossible.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Vindicate Cannot change volume on alarm
This product only functions well as a regular clock. It's features are very limited as an alarm clock. One cannot change the volume on the alarm. What a disappointment! Do not buy this product. The only way to get technical support is either to call them during weekday business hours or else sign up for a Twitter account and tweet them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nick67 very nice product
The clock radio works wonderfully. The volume for alarm is just fine. Really enjoy being able to program radio stations. Having the duel alarms is perfect for the both of our daily schedules. The clock has a light that isn't to bright. So it won't keep you up all night. The size is really sencible not bulky or cumbersum.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Abhy Nice product
Overall it's a nice product. Pretty neat design. The only problem are clock and radio settings. Once the product is switched off and switched on again, you will have to reset the clock and all the radio channels again. QUITE A BIG PAIN !!

Rated 4 out of 5 by tomscat works well
One problem I had was the instructions. They were so small I had to use a magnifying glass to see it. Some parts were confusing. Once I looked up the product online for the instructions it was no trouble. The instructions are not for Superman, humans have to read them. Print they in a regular size.

Rated 2 out of 5 by AMOM99 frustrating
This clock works just fine, but the lack of clarity in the directions made me want to rip my hair out. They repeatedly mention standby mode but do not tell you how to get to standby mode. If there were directions that included words instead of cryptic pictures, I may have been able to figure out how to set the alarm without wanting to hurt someone.
